MARCH 6 – Liz Hoag

“In all my work, the light is critical to the feeling.” After taking photographs on walks around her neighborhood or local trails, Liz returns to her studio. This is where the magic happens. Starting with a dark canvas or negative space, she builds up by adding light. The result is a stained glass image that is both abstract and representational.

In Maine, there are paths, trees, branches, color, light, air, open space, and water. We have a visual peace within reach, whether looking up at trees in our suburban neighborhoods, driving down country highways, or walking trails to the lakes, streams, and sea. We can find calm and beauty along the road almost anywhere in Maine.

Outlook – 18×24 Acrylic on Canvas


MARCH 9 – Ellen Welch Granter

Time Flies – 24×24 Oil on Canvas
Summer Long – 24×24 Oil on Canvas

“I get inspiration from many sources, including the changing colors, patterns, and atmospheres of the landscape around me as my imagination’s random idea generatorI am searching for an elegant balance of spare compositions in each painting over large fields of luminous color. When observing everyday subjects such as shells, I try to pay attention to the small spaces between them and the abstract patterns created by their characteristic colors.” -Ellen Welch Granter.


MARCH 10 – Lyn Asselta

Beginning To Clear – 24×18 Pastel
Morning Meditations – 18×18 Pastel

Asselta is a pastel artist with twenty-five years of experience in the arts. However, she didn’t begin focusing on pastels until she opened an old box of Grumbacher pastels. She never looked back. Being drawn to locations with a rugged, solitary strength, she loves places with untold stories where she can lose herself in the nature surrounding her. Pastel allows Lyn to hold a piece of color in her hand and to capture the essence of the wild, untouched beauty she finds in the world.
